Michigan U-Pick Cherry Update (6/28/2010)

(Last Updated On: July 11, 2013)


UPDATE: Check out my report on the 2013 Michigan Cherry Crop

Last week, I talked about the condition of the cherry crop and status of u-pick farms in Michigan. Today I have some additional news to report. Wasem’s Fruit Farm in Milan will NOT be offering u-pick cherries this season. Their crop was too small. But you can still buy already picked cherries from them. Visit their website for more information.

Here are some additional updates from around southern Michigan:

1. Erwin Orchards is having u-pick sweet cherries, starting to today. Their supply is limited. They are located in South Lyon on Silver Lake Road. Click here to visit their website.

2. Corey Lake Orchards have plenty of sour cherries left for picking as well as a few sweet cherries. They are located in Three Rivers on Corey Lake Road. Click here to visit their website.

3. As far as I know Fruit Acres Farm in Coloma, MI is still offering u-pick cherries. You can call them at (269) 468-5076 for an update.

If you know of any other places in Michigan offering u-pick cherries currently, feel free to leave a comment. I am mainly focusing on the southern part of the state since that is where I live.

  1. […] Click here for the most recent update. I have been looking into doing some cherry picking this season. Unfortunately the news I have gotten from local farms has not been good. I checked with Kapnick Orchards in Britton, MI and they said they will not be doing U-Pick cherries this season. I also heard from Wasem’s Fruit Farm in Milan, MI and there is some doubt they will be having u-pick cherries this year. They said their crop is small this year, but they will make a final decision in a week (on June 28). The weather this spring was not too kind to a lot of Michigan fruit crops. We had a warm start to the spring, which causes the plants to begin flowering early. But then at the end of April and start of May we had some freezes that did damage to the cherry blossoms. So it may be difficult if you want to pick your own cherries this year in southeast Michigan. However, you can still pick up farm fresh cherries. I got some from both the Ann Arbor and Saline farmer’s market last week. […]
